GOLD MEDAL | NWWA 2023
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Our admiration for the Y Series range knows no bounds and once again Yalumba have smacked 'Value for money' out of the park with this well priced Merlot. Get amongst it.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "This is richly ripe and instantly appealing with blackcurrant, blueberry, mixed spice, almond and floral aromas on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying, showing succulent fruit intensity with supple texture and silky tannins, finishing lingering and delectable."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Ripe, dark fruited bouquet with sweet Doris plums and vanilla smoky wood tones, some violets and dark clay mineral qualities. A core of dark fruit flavours from plums to back berries, there’s a ripe sweet quality from the fruit accentuated by the influences of wood and alcohol. Moderate acidity layers in some frshness. A balanced even wine ready to drink from 2023 through 2026+."
The winery writes "This enticing and youthful Merlot will light up the room with its jovial presence. Fresh and bright, it displays fresh plum, mulberry and violet aromatics with beautiful, long tannins."
